Fidel Castro may have known of Oswald plot to kill JFK, ex-CIA officer claims

Castro was "officially" cleared of involvement in the Kennedy assassination.

But now, a retired CIA officer says different !!

The agent claims Castro knew, and was watching .... listening .... and ... waiting for ....

The Raw Story Article

Retired CIA officer says Cuban leader ordered intelligence officer to listen for news from Texas on morning of shooting.

It is one of history’s most enduring mysteries and has kept conspiracy theorists buzzing for half a century: did Fidel Castro have a hand in the assassination of President John F Kennedy?

Officially, the Cuban dictator was cleared of involvement in the shooting of his fiercest adversary. The inquiry into the murder concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald, a communist sympathiser, acted alone.

Now a retired CIA officer claims to have proof that Castro knew the murder was about to happen – an allegation certain to refuel speculation before next year’s 50th anniversary of a pivotal moment of the 20th century.

Brian Latell, who studied Cuban affairs as a CIA analyst in the 1960s and became the agency’s chief intelligence officer for Latin America, says in a book that he is certain Castro at least knew the attack was going to happen. ....

Castro refused Oswald entry to Cuba not long before JFK was killed. His reasons where because Oswald was a CIA man.

This is probably bs just to draw support for the embargo and to keep public sympathies towards Cuba at a low.

There's a difference between knowing about it and being part of the conspiracy. From what I've read, the KGB knew it was coming down as well and tried to stop it. I recommend reading the following:

The Man Who Knew Too

In a story purposely muddled by confusing and contradictory deflection, this book seems to have the straight goods. I will read the article posted with interest, though.

When Kennedy was killed, Castro was looking forward to increased relations with the US. Kennedy had been sending messages to him saying he wanted to establish better communication between the two leaders. When Castro heard about the assassination he reportedly was not at all happy, knowing that Johnson would not encourage better relations with Cuba.

So no, Castro had no motive to be involved in any way.

The JFK assassination debate has turned into something like a national soap opera. What did Marx tell us?

"History does everything twice: first time tragedy, second time farce."

if ex-CIA officer has anything
remotely connecting him to the cuban exile movement
you can be sure it's BS

the cuban exile movement claims to want a free and democratic cuba

my paternal grandfather knew them well, as a negro in cuba, he had no upward mobility [going from tobacconist to sugar cane cutter is a downgrade] at all under the racist batista/meyer lansky regime Fidel toppled so he left and became a us citizen.

the cuban exile movement is composed of the old oligarchs and mafiosi fidel kicked out.

are they going to try and assassinate Fidel Qaddafi style now ?

how could he possibly know of the bushes [papa bush was allegedly seen in dallas that day,then theres the "confusion" about when he really retired from cia] and others plans to kill jfk?

If anything this is some of Gerald Posner sidewinder games for the 50th. imho

If anything, the Dallas "crooks" called up some sources in Cuba and told them the JFK hit was happening in Dallas on the 22nd, so they tuned to see if that was true. Khruschev and Castro were going along with the JFK peace theme, and when JFK was offed they both said everything was changed now.

The Dallas Kill JFK gang came about because the US nuclear weapons scientists wanted Israel to have the bomb and JFK didn't. So, they got Jack Ruby to do the arranging in Dallas to work up the JFK hit. Dallas was a hot bed of hate toward JFK because General Cabell was fired by JFK, General Walker was as much fired from the military, and HL Hunt in Dallas hated JFK with a passion and he was PERMINDEX connected.

PERMINDEX controller was Louis Bloomfield, a raging Zionist supporter for Israel's Bomb, and associated with JE Hoover's DISC network in the US. DISC was over areas like Redstone, TVA Muscle Shoals, and USAEC operations. So, they had Hoover's backing, and LBJ backing Hoover and things were a go. Everyone had something to gain as motives.

What started the ball rolling against JFK was the weapons labs Jewish scientists backed Ben Gurion, and they used their extensive connections to Dallas to orchestrate the hit using talent from PERMINDEX. One of the weapons factor persons knew Jack Ruby personally, and use him as their staging man.

If one looks what happens afterwards, one finds Edward Teller running over to Israel to hand feed them in how to make hydrogen bombs and boosted core fission bombs. Not only that, but the Mossad invades NUMEC up in Apollo, Pa. and steals all manner of weapons grade uranium and the DISC organization is looking the other way as much as LBJ is looking the other way. LBJ was a huge Zionist sympathizer.

When JFK asked for the UFO stuff, that was going to cut Allen Dulles throat as the entire Roswell, NM mess was some human experiments with nuclear weapons and old NAZI lenticular aircraft designs to study their response to airborne nuclear detonations. This Roswell Ranch was just over the hill from the White Sands Range, the nuclear test range of the time, after Goddard Left. When Allen Dulles brought over Ardent NAZI's all their rocket and plane stuff ended up at Roswell AFB, then NAZI were put at Ft, Bliss at the South end of White Sands range and the V-2 testing of Germany cranked up at White Sands. When JFK asked for the UFO information he asked for War Crimes double involvement by Allen Dulles via the NAZI's and Paperclip. General Cabell was the principle in charge of much of the Human Experiment cover up at Roswell. And crooked SAC commander and JCS member Curtis LeMay also involved. JCS LeMay hated JFK with a passion also, and was trying to push JFK around in the White House along with Zionist General named Lyman Lemnitzer.

JFK had a big time high level mutiny on his hands and if anything LHO was trying all he could do to stop the JFK hit. JFK died mainly by the PERMINDEX operatives, the same ones trying to kill DeGaulle in France over their stopping support for the Dimona reactor being used to make the Zionist's bomb. Israel was after NPT violator Israel.

LHO knew too much, and he knew of the Zionist involvement on the JFK hit, and Jack Ruby, being a raging Zionist, had to kill LHO or basically the US reponse if all that leaked out would be to wipe out Zionists in the US. All the AIPAC types would have to register as foreign agents, as JFK was seeking. What should have happened if LHO lived was the Zionists in the weapons labs involved with the JFK hit support would have been hanged or shot. All the Dallas Corrupt alliances from Hunt and PERMINDEX also gotten firing squads or hangings. That didn't happen because Jacob Rubenstein shot Lee Harvey Oswald to keep those facts from becoming public.

It is a pretty clear cut case of crooks in high level places killing JFK to have him replaced with LBJ, who was a raging Zionist that looked the other way for the Zionist's bomb as pay-back, and supported continued wars against Communism.

The Dallas crooks using the Zionist PERMINDEX were careful to leave a Jewish bread crumb trail just in case PERMINDEX back-fired or got caught. This shows up as HL Hunt's gang using Bernard Weissberg in the flyer and paper adds on JFK being Communist. Also, shots were fired from Dal-Tex, which was owned by Jewish Morris Jaffee, a Big LBJ supporter and crook involved with the USAEC, and obviously Jacob Rubenstein (Jack Ruby) was Jewish and caught in the middle as LHO knew all the players. LHO was a death sentence for a lot of people in high places when he told his story. Even Pogroms against Jews and the end of the Zionist Bomb more than likely.

The gullabilty of the American Citizens has become so extreme that there is little sign of thinking, just people programmed to repeat what they hear. So, the Joeseph Goebbels theme on the larger the lie the more easy the sell to stupid people appears totally valiadated. In JFK all the Warren Commission game was total corruption to cover up the real motives on the JFK murder.

In a rare moment of Lucid replay George Bush gave a glimpes of the levels of the lies to the American Citizens:


"If the people were to ever find out what we have done, we would be chased down the streets and lynched." President George H.W. Bush, quoted by Sarah McClendon (White House Reporter) in her June 1992 Newsletter.



This should have happened, but didn't because the American People are so controlled and ignorant it makes them to continual victim of every political scam artist in Congress and there are many.

It has only become a hundred times worse since the times of the massive lies on JFK, and the America people all the more dumb as beast in the fields.

So no, Castro had no motive to be involved in any way.

Oh, I'm not so sure about that to be honest.

Many attempts were made to oust Castro, the failed Bay of Pigs invasion perhaps being the most famous attempt sponsored by the American Government. Many assassination attempts were also made on his life from those in American government, particularly the joint operations of the CIA and the Mafia as shown here: - CIA conspired with mafia to kill Castro

The CIA conspired with a Chicago gangster described as "the chieftain of the Cosa Nostra and the successor to Al Capone" in a bungled 1960 attempt to assassinate Fidel Castro, the leader of Cuba's communist revolution, according to classified documents published by the agency yesterday.

The disclosure is contained in a 702-page CIA dossier known as the "Family Jewels" compiled at the behest of then agency director James Schlesinger in 1973. According to a memo written at the time, the purpose of the dossier was to identify all current and past CIA activities that "conflict with the provisions of the National Security Act of 1947" - and were, in other words, illegal. - Trying to Kill Fidel Castro

It was certainly a marriage of convenience. After Fidel Castro led a revolution that toppled a friendly government in 1959, the CIA was desperate to eliminate him. So the agency sought out a partner equally worried about Castro -- the Mafia, which had lucrative investments in Cuban casinos.

The plot, described in detail in CIA documents released yesterday, involved six poison pills, a bungled wiretapping and CIA operatives working with two mob bosses on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list. - CIA hired the Mafia to kill Fidel Castro

The Central Intelligence Agency knowingly worked with two of America's most-wanted Mafia figures in a botched attempt to assassinate Fidel Castro in the early 1960s, according to documents released yesterday.

The CIA declassified 705 pages of memorandums and reports detailing some of the agency's worst illegal abuses during 25 years of overseas assassination attempts, domestic spying and kidnapping.

The documents are known within the agency as the "Family Jewels," and were written in the mid 1970s at the behest of former directors anxious to know the worst of its activities in the wake of the Watergate scandal.

They acknowledge the secret testing of mind-altering drugs like '___' on unwitting US citizens, the wiretapping of journalists, spying on civil rights and anti-Vietnam war protesters, and break-ins at the homes of ex-CIA employees and others.

..These being just a few sources on this out there. So no, I don't think it's out of the question to completely dismiss the theory that as assassination teams were being sent to Castro in order to, of course, assassinate him, he in turn sent assassination teams over to America - These potentially proving successful in 1963, the year of JFK's murder.

Not that I actually and wholly subscribe to that theory just yet, but I consider it as a possibility still as we all should as well in my opinion due to what I shown above. So when you say there was no motive at all, I do have to disagree. I think he had a rather good motive - Whether he actually was involved or not however is of course a completely different thing.

I'll give you a bigger hint. JFK took on Ben Gurion in around May 63. LHO gets invited to Oak Ridge in July of 63 and plugged into the kill JFK plan then, and he left a little bread crumb trail about that at the Oak Ridge Atomic Museum that showed up in the FBI's hands. That likely got him the role of patsy at that point.

An Oak Ridge person went to High School with Jack Ruby in Chicago and later moved to Dallas also. It is this Oak Ridge person that got Ruby to act as the front man in Dallas to set up the Dallas hit, and other attempts, and LHO tends to show up at these.

LHO is telling his FBI handler in Dallas all about the JFK hit to shut it down, but that guy is told by Hoover to burn all those notes.

Ruby's action in killing Oswald was to keep Ruby and his gang from landing in the electric chair, and there were a lot of them that would be fried in the chair if Oswald got his day in court and the public found out the extent of what was going on in Dallas.

I think you might find that explanation a lot more seamless. imho

Castro was not at all unique in knowing about Dallas, as lots of people in Oak Ridge knew who all was involved in the JFK hit the day it happened, also

What I mean is that at the time of the assassination attempts were being made by Kennedy to open up discussions with Castro and if Castro had a choice between Kennedy and Johnson, it wouldn't make sense to kill off the lesser of 2 evils.

And I can't remember where I read it, but supposedly Castro said something to the effect of "well, so much for that" when he heard Kennedy was dead. He was apparently looking forward to better relations with the US and Kennedy and he was sending messages to that effect.
